    I don't quite know what you mean. But i'm going to be wandering the city this weekend. Might be the only chance to ever see downtown look halfway decent. Should be a good time.

    IMO Detroit extends from Toledo to Flint to Ann Arbor to Windsor. The boundaries change but basically Detroiters. :smug:

    Where do you live?

    Mark me as a Detroiter (almost) - Just a bit north of 8 mile. In fact, my band is playing Small's in Hamtramck Saturday night. Should be a great time, and of course, everyone is invited :)

    I live less than a mile from LDS. I go in occasionally, but its usually pretty painful -- i can't really afford anything right now.

    I've had the opportunity to play a show with one of their light 410's.... wow. What an amazing cabinet. I'm gassing to replace my edens, and I keep promising my back that I will do it soon.

    I play with Natives of the New Dawn. We had an article in the metro times a month or so ago that you might have seen. It's the funnest, most satisfying gig I've had. I'm with talented, creative players that push me to grow musically and personally.

    Not to mention all the dancing girls. :D

    I'll be looking for you. I'll be the one with the two out of control grade-schoolers and the hella-cool missus. Do we still say hella-cool?

    Peace,
